I recently had the opportunity to meet with Gloria Pffeferle, Membership Coordinator for the Beach Canal Lighthouse Group.
The group's desire is to restore the Lighthouse and the Lighthouse Keeper's cottage back to it's original state. To expand the grounds and add gardens. When this is all accomplish they hope to allow the Lighthouse and cottage to be rented for personal or corporate functions.
I have included a bit of information about the Beach Canal Lighthouse Group, also included links regarding their site.
